Good specs, looks pretty clean (going by the pic in the article), only squeeze that matters is the wallet one - it fails that test.

This is what happens when these companies release a new flagship phone every 12 months... They run out of ideas and try the most idiotic ideas ever.

It's got the best camera on a smartphone currently so it's not all gimmicks.

Where can one buy HTC in SA? Not necessarily this model!
It would appear that HTC South Africa is dead. I have been hounding HTC, HTC SA, Vodacom on Twitter as well as mybb to get a news article going but my requests have fallen on deaf ears. For some unknown reason mybb refuses to investigate what has happened to HTC and it is very frustrating to fans of HTC products. I get it mybb Samsung and Huawei pay for articles and HTC do not so why bother investigating if they go silent...

Side note Cellucity have confirmed that Vodacom will not be getting the HTCU11.

HTC U11 fails durability test

Hopefully you've already gone through our recently published HTC U11 review. If you have, then the next logical step would be to watch a durability testing video that will show you how well it fares in scratch, burn, and bend tests. Conveniently, JerryRigEverything has uploaded just such a video today, and it's embedded here for your viewing pleasure.

The U11 starts off as expected - its Gorilla Glass protects the screen from scratches as much as it should. The sides of the handset are revealed to be made out of real metal, as is the lip around the main camera.

It took only 8 seconds of applying an open flame to the display before the pixels went black, but once the fire was put out the screen did recover.

Things went south when it came time for the bend test, however. The U11's metal frame allows it to bend way more than it should. Bending the device from the front results in shattered glass, unlike what occurred with the similarly-looking U Ultra. That seems to have happened this time around because the U11 unfortunately pairs curved glass with a flexible frame.
